The best aspect of this job is all of you. Your passion for the Yankees is incredible and it makes doing the work that Chad and I do incredibly rewarding. You guys have made this the single best Yankees destination around and, ideally, there would be no restrictions or limitations on what can be said here.
That said, this is a newspaper blog and so there have to be some rules to keep things civil and appropriate. What does that mean? Not much more than just having common courtesy.
• Racism, sexism or anything like it is absolutely NOT allowed. Same with personal attacks or insults.
• Posing as another poster is NOT allowed.
• Cursing or using foul language – even if you don’t actually spell out the word – is NOT allowed.
Basically, this is a Yankees forum at its core, and that should be the focus. Everyone’s views are valid and welcome, and should be respected. Sure, people will disagree some times – probably even a lot – but that doesn’t mean it has to degenerate into something inappropriate. Some basic civility is all that’s needed.
If you have any questions, problems or concerns about any of this, please don’t hesitate to e-mail Chad or me. Thanks again for being part of our world here.
By the way, for those who have e-mailed either of us with suggestions about updating the blog roll, changing styles in the blog or anything else, please know that Chad and I are planning to talk about all of those “big picture” blog questions after the season is over. It’s just so busy during the playoffs that those kinds of things can’t get the attention they deserve until things have settled down. We do appreciate the input though, so feel free to keep it coming.
